Adult Swim’s 24-hour channel arrives in Canada

In the immortal words of Robot Chicken, “What a twist!” For the first time anywhere, an entire channel devoted to Adult Swim has launched in Canada, and it’s home to hit shows Rick and Morty, Robot Chicken, Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories, and The Eric Andre Show, to name a few.

Adult Swim kicked off with a launch party with special guests Sarah Chalke, from Rick and Morty, and Derrick Beckles from Mostly for Millenials.

New series will launch on Adult Swim in Canada on the same day they launch in the U.S. That includes the upcoming new series, Lazor Wulf, a 15-minute animated series about “finding the inner strength to buy your own cereal, not dying, and the art of the scam,” by creator Henry Bonsu and Bento Box Entertainment.

The new channel also features Adult Swim-worthy shows: Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, American Dad, and more.

Shows that previously aired on Teletoon at Night will move to Adult Swim, as Teletoon shifts to become a 24/7 family-friendly channel.

Adult Swim will be available for free preview from April 1 to May 31, 2019, and full episodes are available on demand for free until January 2020.

Adult Swim replaces Action channel. Stay tuned for our interviews with Eric Andre, and the stars of Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell, Henry Zebrowski and Matt Servitto.
